Wear monitoring / tool wear

Tool wear detection or wear tracking is an important issue in series production. The aim is to replace tools depending on their actual wear and not on the basis of operating hours. The wear monitoring of the ToolScope systems also make it possible to compare different tool suppliers. It can be established when the respective wear limit was reached. The system automatically suggests warning limits and alarm limits. However, the actual wear limits usually depend on the respective process and the quality required.
